When I go to settings->about phone->software update->software update check, I always get "connection failed caused by authentication error". I have my phone on a working wifi connection to the internet. Is this a problem with my phone or are there just no updates? Here's my phone's stats: Model number: LG-P990 Android version: 2.2.2 Baseband version: 1035.21_20110218 Kernel version 18.104.22.168-dirty (wtf?) Build number FRG83G LGE Version: LGP990-V10a Should there be updates for my phone? Is Android 2.3 available for this phone now? Will I get updates by connecting to the PC? I see this horror story of a 2x turned into a brick while doing an update connected to the PC, can anyone report back with a successful update from the PC? BTW, what do roots and custom ROMs do? Right now I am not demanding much from my phone, just want the best browser and music player for it and for the phone to be as stable as possible. Right now I'm using Skyfire 4.0 for browsing and PowerAMP for music. Skyfire has crapped out on me about once a day; the phone has restarted itself once or twice in two weeks.
